sweater is given as acceptable but jumper isn't accepted. this isn't right

May 28, 2014


So fed up of getting jumper marked wrong, in favour of sweater. Wake up Duo...

January 14, 2015


Still not accepting jumper or jersey as translation of maglia. Please revisit this issue, Duo. It's irritating to us Brits!

What is the difference between maglia and camicia

November 21, 2016


I agree. Not sure where this maglie comes from. everything I read before suggested camicia as the term for shirt

January 25, 2017


It is, camicia is the term for shirt and maglie is the plural of Jersey.

I was so confused. Lol

T shirts, jerseys, sports shirts ...ALL MAGLIE ! Why mark "jerseys" wrong ? When I put it as singular jersey earlier, it was right !!

May 21, 2017


If you think this is confusing, wait till you get to the flashcards :)

'jerseys' was marked wrong, but what about 'la maglia rosa', the most famous jersey of Italian cycling?

April 23, 2017


"the jerseys are not yellow" not accepted. May 7 2018. Reported.

May 7, 2018


It is not accepted at Oct 30 2018. Reported.

October 29, 2018


One of the suggestions for Le maglie is sports shirts, yet I was marked incorrect!

Since when does maglia mean shirt???

October 9, 2017


I have only just started Italian, but I am sure jersey was accepted in an earlier answer to la maglia: does the plural have a different meaning?

January 10, 2018


for heavens sake jumper sweater jersey are the same things

September 26, 2018


"the jerseys are not yellow" is not accepted and neither is "the sports shirts are not yellow". Why is DL insistent on me calling maglie "shirts" when maglia is a "jersey". I've googled the images and all I see is sports shirts. When I enter the word camicia I see shirts with buttons so that is what I would call a shirt. I thought it was as follows; camicia (shirt with buttons), maglia (sports jersey), maglione (a jumper/sweater), maglietta (t-shirt).

Come on Duolingo. Maglia/e are JERSEY's, you mark the answer wrong. I live in Italy and our Italian friends said that you are wrong in listing the answer as just s shirt. It is a JERSEY or T-SHIRT. Please fix your error.
